'Terminal Velocity' is Most Wanted's new playground photo
'Terminal Velocity' is Most Wanted's new playground
by Keith Swiader

Criterion Games is a company known for releasing substantial post-release content for its titles. 

This statement is no more apparent than with the studio's last Burnout title, Burnout Paradise, which not only saw substantial premium content, but a ton of freebies at that, including the addition of motorcycles and a dynamic weather system. Paradise's biggest expansion came in the form of Big Surf Island, which attached a vast new playing field to the game's core city and brought with it a handful of new cars, races, and billboards.

This notion transitioned to Criterion's latest racer, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, with the game's newest downloadable content, Terminal Velocity -- a pack that has racers take to the skies in a whole new playground ... metaphorically speaking.
